No, since the army can't move to the sea, it can't support moves to a sea either.

Yes, my game is in the confirmation stage, but next time i will follow your advice :D

Not quite - if you go to Spain south coast, that stretches into the Med so you can move on from there. north coast not. Bulgaria and St Petersburg are similar in having two separate stretches of coast.

Confusing isn't it?!

If its a fleet supporting yes...if its an army supporting no.

Thats the short answer...

Make sure the supporting fleet can move to the sea legally

The rule is - if the unit could move there itself it can support; if not, can't

Hello

I have just joined and have created a new game. 6 players have joined but I dont know how to start the game. Must I wait for a 7 player.

Any help would be much appreciated.

When 7 players are in the game...it will go to confirmations...and then you all confirm...then it starts.

You don't have to "hit start" or anything.
